PNP clears Michael Yang of drug links despite Acierto intel report

Otherwise, nagkaroon na ng investigation, at napabilang na ito sa mga bilang ng personalidad na involved sa illegal drugs,' says Philippine National Police spokesman Colonel Bernard Banac

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) has cleared Presidential adviser Michael Yang of illegal drugs links, despite an intelligence report prepared by veteran anti-drug cop Eduardo Acierto alleging involvement in illegal drugs.

"Sa ngayon, lumalabas na wala naman, cleared naman (For now, it appears that there are no drug links. He's cleared)," PNP spokesman Colonel Bernard Banac said in a news briefing on Tuesday, March 26.

He also said: "Ito nga ay wala naman, wala namang kaugnayan 'yung naturang tao sa illegal drugs. Otherwise nagkaroon na ng investigation, at napabilang na ito sa mga bilang ng personalidad na involved sa illegal drugs."

(There's really nothing. The person has no links to illegal drugs, otherwise, there should have been an investigation, and he should have been included in the list of personalities involved in illegal drugs.)

Cleared of what? On Sunday, March 24, Acierto surfaced and alleged that he submitted an intel report mentioning Yang as involved in illegal drugs. (READ: Ex-cop Acierto speaks out: Duterte, PNP ignored intel on Michael Yang's drug links)

PNP still looking into Michael Yang's possible drug links – Albayalde
PNP chief General Oscar Albayalde clarifies that the police will not conduct a full-on probe but just 'information gathering' on the former presidential aide in relation to the allegations of dismissed anti-drug cop Eduardo Acierto

He handed the report to key officials in the Duterte anti-drug campaign: former PNP chief Ronald dela Rosa, incumbent PNP chief General Oscar Albayalde, former police director for operations Lieutenant General Camilo Cascolan, and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agencey (PDEA) chief Director General Aaron Aquino.

Aquino confirmed to Rappler that he relayed the intel report to Malacañang, which he said vowed to probe Yang. Despite the intel, Aquino said Yang was not included in President Rodrigo Duterte's narco-list, which collects names based on intelligence information.

Acierto believed the report was ignored or blocked to protect Yang, a longtime acquaintance of Duterte.

On what basis? Pressed to share how they cleared Yang despite his intel report, Banac said he was just echoing the statement of Malacañang, which earlier cleared Yang.

"Ang statement ng Palasyo at ng PNP ay iisa naman (The statement of the Palace and the PNP is just one)," Banac said.

The PNP, however, can still act on the intelligence report prepared by Acierto, but only if they see it fit to do so.

In an earlier interview with Rappler, Albayalde said Acierto had lost his credibility for not working on the case himself before he was dismissed from the service over an illegal firearms deal, and implicated in the multibillion-peso shabu shipment controversy in 2018.

"Why didn't he do that when he had the chance? How can you prove his credibility now? He has no credibility. What's happening is, he's doing a shotgun," the PNP chief said. –

Duterte: What my family earns outside of gov’t is none of your business

By: Nestor P. Burgos Jr. - @inquirerdotnet
Philippine Daily Inquirer / 03:53 PM April 07, 2019

ILOILO CITY, Philippines–President Rodrigo Duterte on Saturday evening hit back at reports raising questions on his family’s income and operation of their family’s law firm.

“What we earn outside (of government service) is none of your business actually,” the President said in a speech before around 2,000 delegates to the 25th National Convention of the National Federation of Motorcycle Clubs of the Philippines held at the Iloilo Convention Center here.

While not naming the report and the news organization, the President was apparently referring to a series of reports of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) which delved on the President, his daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio and son former Davao City vice mayor Paolo Duterte’s significant increase of income while in office

“Makita mo yung mga utak ng investigative journalists. Pera-pera lang yon (You see how the investigative journalists think. It’s just money for them),” the President said.

The PCIJ series also raised questions on the family law firm and failure to disclose some business interests in their Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net worth (SALN).

Citing his SALNs, the PCIJ reported that the President’s net worth increased in a span of 20 years from P934,092 in June 1998 to P28,540,321 in 2017.

The President reiterated his strong stance against corruption saying he would be “firing a lot of people simply for corruption” when he returns to Manila.

He said he was not involved in initiating and signing of government contracts.

“It begins and ends with the Cabinet secretary,” he said.

The Philippine Reclamation Authority was placed under his office to speed up its work and because there was an internal “squabble over money,” according to the President.

The PCIJ reported that The Carpio & Duterte Lawyers firm, with Sara and husband Manaases Carpio as partners, was not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

It also cited the prohibition on mayors and governors from exercising their profession. But the President said the law firm was a necessary option for their family.

“You know you have to have a law office because there is an election every three years. If you lose in these elections, where would you go?” the President said.

“There nothing wrong as long as you do not practice and you do not help people get something from government that is illegal. That is the one they should look into instead of our law office and what happened to our business partnership. It’s not your goddamn business. As long as it is not the people’s money, I don’t give a ****,” the President added.
